More on Iowa WI-FI Rest Areas:

Beginning in June, six Iowa rest areas will be equipped as wireless access points. This technology allows motorists to connect to the Internet via their wireless communication devices while visiting one of the selected rest areas.

This six-month pilot research project will evaluate the long-term feasibility of providing wireless access at all Iowa rest areas. According to McMenamin, “If this technology proves beneficial to users in terms of increased highway safety and improved access to local tourist information and business services, the DOT could consider expanding it to other rest areas.â€￾ Expansion would involve a solicitation of bids from wireless companies to offer the free service.
